You can see from the discussion I have opened about this camera
having "outmoded" double sprocket drives and possibly a problematic
double pull down claw,
that this camera may present special challenges to a potential user
of the camera. As quaint as the old camera is, quality not
withstanding, there would be many other more practical options
available on the market.
If you are selling the camera, it would only be fair to point out the
older format of the camera so an unsuspecting beginner would know
about the difficulty in obtaining film stock, without first modifying
the camera.
